Floor Prices for Defectives

Editor's Note: The Government issued two
notifications on 10.12.98 and 17.02.98 whereby seven item of prime as well as
defective quality steel were brought under floor price regime and minimum floor
prices announced were much higher to prevailing international prices of those
items at that time solely with the intent to promote/ protect the domestic
industry. This minimum floor price was for the purpose to levy customs duty as
minimum transaction value. However, import against advance licence falls outside
the floor price scheme.

Import of prime steel floor prices continued till 31.12.99 when these
withdraw by Notification No. 31[RE] dated 01.11.99. However, the floor Price
continues for seconds and defectives. The current values are given in the
